Once we got off the train from France we decided to kill two birds with one stone by having a catch up with our old managers from the then Caravan Club (now the Caravan and Motorhome Club) and a quick look around Brighton before a planned trip next year.
Shaun & Billie were great managers to work with during our time with them at the Brecon Beacons club site. We became good friends and have been in touch ever since we left. Not only did we get on well with them but also we got on with their dogs (eventually) Peggy and Betty. Peggy we won over fairly quickly but Betty took a lot more time but we got there in the end…….I think!
We stopped off at Thriftwood Country Park near Stanstead, Sevenoaks where they have a lovely lodge. An added bonus was that Bruce was staying with them. We met Bruce while he was with them while they were working at the Great Yarmouth site. You can probably guess that Angela and I are big dog lovers.
It was great to see them in their lovely home, they made us feel very welcome and we had a great catch up as well as some lovely vegetarian food.
It was good to see the inside of their lodge as it is something that we may consider in the future!
We said our goodbyes after a couple of days and headed off to the Brighton club site for another short stay before heading back to Oxford to get ready for work.
For some reason we only have pictures of the dogs!
